Bullies need not apply

Mark Shields does not like the Bolton nomination.
"Tell me that Bob Jones III, the president of the segregationist South Carolina university of the same name, has been nominated as chairman of the Civil Rights Commission.

Tell me that Father Dan Berrigan, the antiwar Jesuit priest, had just been named commandant of the Marine Corps or that Sir Elton John will be the new president of the Teamsters Union.

But don't tell me that the United States Senate, which likes to be called the 'the world's greatest deliberative body' will vote to confirm President Bush's pick of John Bolton to be the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations."
